Multi-Coloured Swap Shop

Multi-Coloured Swap Shop

I had a new experience at the weekend… I attended my first clothes swap and it was brilliant! I’ve heard about clothes swaps before and even intended to go along to one I’d heard about a couple of years ago but never managed to make it in the end, so the concept of clothes swapping … Continue reading

Nākd competition: And the winner is…

A few weeks ago, I announced a healthy (and very tasty!) competition on my blog to win a box of delicious Nākd bars from the lovely people over at Natural Balance Foods.

Graduating in Burlesque

Last night saw the debut performance of my burlesque alter ego – Typsy Tease – at the graduation class of the Secrets of the Boudoir Burlesque workshop that I have been attending for the past ten weeks, and what a fantastic evening it was!

Recipe: Slimming World Roulade

I don’t have a massive sweet tooth but since I’ve been doing Slimming World, I’ve not found it too easy to find low ‘syn’ options for when you’re fancying something sweet. But then a couple of weeks ago, I came across a page on Facebook, in which a very lovely lady kindly creates and shares … Continue reading
